On his girlfriend's insistence, a disgruntled man tries to make peace with his high-spirited, street-smart and often irritatingly careless father, a failed actor who never quit his dream to be a success.
An American missionary and his wife travel to the exotic island kingdom of Hawaii, intent on converting the natives. But the clash between the two cultures is too great and instead of understanding there comes tragedy.

Buddy Young was the comic's comic, beloved by everyone. Now, playing to miniscule crowds in nursing homes, it seems like everybody but Buddy realizes that he should retire. As Buddy looks for work in show business, he realizes that the rest of the world has forgotten the golden days of Buddy Young, and that there just may not be room in the business for an old comic like himself.Written by

i really love this movie . the only problem i had with it is billy crystal's make-up as the old buddy. it is horrible. it looks phony and caked on . his face looks like he had 3rd degree burns at one time and was left scared. but that's it. everything else about the movie is great. david paymer had pretty good make up as the older stan. i wish billy crystal had it also.
